The work of an RN or LVN nurse in the state of Texas is not an easy thing to do. There can be some complications that need to be addressed as soon as they arise. Otherwise, the nursing license of a particular nurse may be suspended or revoked by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). At the same time, there is also a possibility of the imposition of fines. The order depends on the finding of guilt or innocence of the RN or LVN nurse involved.
As a professional nurse, you may find yourself in a compromising situation. This is the kind of situation where you may end up losing your nursing license. As such, it is highly recommended that you get in touch with a nursing defense attorney whom you can trust. Do not wait for the proceedings to prosper without hiring a lawyer to help you. Take note that the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may issue orders that can no longer be appealed.
To illustrate this, let me bring up a particular case involving a registered nurse named Julius. He is a LVN nurse employed in one of the famous hospitals in Texas. Unfortunately, there was a complaint filed against him before the Texas Board of Nursing. On or about November 26, 2010, while employed as a Staff Nurse, the LVN nurse may have lacked fitness to practice vocational nursing in that while on duty, he exhibited impaired behavior.
In the complaint, it was enumerated that his behavior included the following: slurred speech and glassy ayes. The conduct of the LVN nurse could have affected her ability to recognized subtle signs, symptoms or changes in the resident condition. Aside from this, it was also argued by the complainant that such act could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessment, judgments, and decision regarding the patient’s care. If continued, it will eventually lead to placing the patients’ lives in danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) released an order regarding the case of Julius. In the order, the BON merely suspended the LVN nurse for the misconduct. Do not let the same mistake happen to you.
